Here Athlon XP 1700+, XFree86, IceWM 1.2.9. Clocks with
seconds on both window manager and screen, but it happens
without them and if I just startx and close it. As I reported
it doesn't happen with your patch, but I may be seeing the
other "problem" you mentioned at

"BTW, with my patch accented characters works correctly only on
VT1. I'm not sure how it behaves on Linus tree..."

Same behavior without your patch. Here I use setfont
lat1-16.psfu in my init scripts. All accents work on the first
console but on the others most miss them for capitals.
